According to the Marine Corps Times, next month’s Marine Corps 17.75-kilometer race will be dedicated to the Marine veteran who was gunned down during her first shift as a police officer last month in Virginia.
The Marine Corps Marathon’s 17.75K, which is held in Virginia’s Prince William County, will honor Ashley Guindon, a police officer for that county who was killed Feb. 27 while responding to a domestic disturbance.
Guindon joined the Marine Corps in 2007 and served in the Reserve until 2015. She was assigned to 4th Marine Logistics Group and served as a field radio operator and personnel retrieval and processing specialist.
The sold-out event slated for April 2 has also made room for Guindon’s friends, colleagues and loved ones to run in her honor.
The 11.03-mile race will start in Manassas and conclude in Prince William Forest Park. Full race details are available on the Marine Corps Marathon’s website.
